I researched Sigma, Tamron and the Nikon 70-200mm f/2.8 lenses until I was blue in the face. I read everything. Specific review, review comparisons, everywhere on the internet. The only conclusion that I could make is that I didn't want to spend the extra $900-$1000 for the Nikon version.

In the reviews it was conclusive that the Nikon was top dog, but only a winner by a nose. I know some Nikon purist will snub the idea of owning a third party lens, and in all fairness, I did not have the Nikon to test. So I didn't see first hand if the extra $$$ was actually worth it. So maybe it is, worth it.

However, I did have both the Sigma 70-200mm f2.8 EX DG APO OS HSM and the Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD for over a week on my Nikon D7000 and took on average around 1000 photos with each. I shot mainly high school football during the day and under the lights well after dark on each lens.

I'll cut the chase. Here were the decision factors to go with the Tamron:
1) zoom on tamron was in the same direction of all of my other nikon lenses. I found myself going the wrong was in critical times out of habit.
2) Tamron warrantee 6yrs vs 3yrs from Sigma
3) Tamron was noticeably faster AND quieter focusing
3) Tamron had slightly sharper (and I calibrated each. Tamron dead on, Sigma was -5)
4) Tamron much better low light focusing.

Here are the things that the Sigma had that I wish the Tamron did:
1) better tripod collar, locking mechanism and smoother transition from landscape to portrait.
2) Came with nice soft case.

First and foremost I cannot say enough about the services from B&H. Hands down the best service.

Unboxing the lens: (nicely packaged) After holding I noticed I actually think the finish and feel of the lens is better then the Nikon vr2 ( I own it). The rubber gripping on the zoom/focus ring has a nice feel. The lens has a solid smooth feel. I think the lens is actually a bit smaller in dimension's and weight compared to the competitor's.
I mounted the lens to my d800 and I noticed the tripod foot is a little close to the camera body. Its actually annoying but not a deal breaker. I removed the foot then snapped a few shots. It was cloudy out and I was shooting some birds, flowers, people and random objects at different lengths. Optically this lens is better the the Nikon. How much better? Marginally better. The auto focus was smoother in the way it focused on a far object to a close. It didn't jump around it all. Sometimes my Nikon does bounce a little before it locks (not much). As far as AF speed it was very quick. Faster then the Nikon in real world use. The VC/VR was nice I didn't see any issues like I read about it warming up before it works. I noticed abot 2-3 stops with it vs hand holding it. This was all outside at about 430 in the afternoon on a partially cloudy day. I wanted to see how it preformed in dim light so I went indoors. This is where I noticed some issues. It hunted
pretty bad. the lens really struggled in locking focus in a timely manner. I don't think I would be comfortable shooting a wedding with this if I relied solely on auto-focus. I shoot with mostly Zeiss primes so it still wasn't a deal breaker for me. I decided to try manual focusing. When I grabbed the focus ring it was very easy to focus with one finger. Almost to easy, I have a concern of the focus ring having problems down the road. If you have ever used the new Nikon 28mm 1.8G it reminds me alot of that ring. Loose. It makes it easy to quickly manual focus but I have a real concern of some issues within a year of regular use.
I then put it away and debated on returning it. I waited two days to take the lens to a indoor volleyball game (I regularly shoot this sport so I needed to be put through the ringer) The lens tanked. The auto Focus wouldn't lock on anything. The easy manual focus was great and had it been stiff I would have been up a creek without a paddle. I still question the build of it but its ease made it usable.
The fallowing day I used the lens at a wedding (indoor) the same thing I couldn't lock focus with it at all. To be fair my 24-70/70-200 Nikon wouldn't lock either. It did great outdoors even in cloudy weather.

I wouldn't trust this lens for any low light photography that you need auto focus. It just wont cut it. Optically I have zero complaints, I actually would agree that it is better the Nikon. dXomark gave it 3 points higher then the Nikon. I was really hoping to use this lens as a replacement but I decided to return it due to the lacking AF in low light. Outside the Tamron's AF was speedy. So If you don't shoot sports or weddings indoors I would suggest this lens over the Nikon.

I hope this was some help.

Comments about Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Zoom Lens for Nikon:

I am an enthusiast. I went back and forth between this and the Nikon 70-200, and finally based on the reviews on this site and several Youtube reviews, I went with the Tamron. The lens appears well made. The autofocus is fast, and the lens appears to be tack sharp with the relatively small number of photos I have taken with it so far on my Nikon D600. It is heavy, but that is not really a big deal if you are not trying to carry it around all day. I took some photos of my grandson this evening in low light, and was impressed with the quality of the results. I am glad I got this one and saved the $ over the Nikon. I would buy again. I shoot several events at my church each year, and this lens should really improve my results.

      Comments about Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Zoom Lens for Nikon:

      After owning the Nikon 80-200 2.8D (2-Ring version) for a few years, I thought that there is room for improvement. The autofocus was a bit slow because of the screw drive and this lens was a bit prone to CA not having the latest and greatest glass technology applied. I also found it a bit soft wide open.So after a lot of research, I decided on this Tamron.Pluses and Minuses compared to Nikon (80 - 200)on a Nikon D7100:+ Cost: $ cheaper than Nikon+ Image Quality - this has great IQ even wide open at 2.8 with wonderful bokeh+ Low CA+ Faster autofocus+ Better low-light acquisition+ Removable tripod collar. The 80-200 doesn't+ 10mm gain on the low end- Does not autofocus with Teleconverters (I have a Kenko) and due to design I believe it will not fit with Nikon. This is the biggest reason for a 1 star subtraction in my rating.- Doesn't come with a cloth pouch/bagWeight: This is a bit heavier than the the 80 - 200 but that is because it contains a fast autofocus motor and it is a 70-200 2.8 robustly built lens. The weight is to be expectected. Folks considering this type of lens with the build quality should not complain about the weight of this lens. If weight is a problem, consider an f/4 lens - not a 2.8.Bottom line: I really like this lens and I already see and feel it will help improve the IQ of my photos. I can revert back to my days of film when using a TC (which is rare) and focus manually as the camera will still tell me the metadata and when the lens is in focus with the TC.

      The lens is pretty impressive. Performs very well in low light situations and auto-focus is very accurate. I haven't had any missed shots yet with this lens. It feels just a little bit softer at 200mm when wide open. Other than that, it is every penny worth it.

      Comments about Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Zoom Lens for Nikon:

      I spent a lot of time thinking about getting this lens. I compared it to the Nikon 70-200 VR II f/2.8. The Nikon was more expensive. I read a number of reviews on the Tamron. The DXOMark site is a good one to visit for those that might be interested. I've always purchased Nikon lenses. Just before buying this lens, I bought the Tamron 24-70 f/2.8 from B & H. I found that lens to be incredible also. So with that being evident, I decided to purchase the Tamron. 70-200. After receiving the lens from B&H, I just started taking all sorts of random pictures more or less to see what the potential was for the lens. I must say that the photos I've taken so far are some of the clearest, sharpest photos I've ever taken. I have nothing negative to say about the Nikon as I'm certain I would also have been very happy with it also. Here are my pros for this lens. 1. It is a fast lens and good for low light as well as portrait and landscapes.2. The bokeh effect is very good.3. Auto focusing is very fast, accurate and sharp. Also very quiet.4. I like the 6 year warranty. That is a plus.5. The lens is built very good. Strong, solid and durable looking.The only con I have for this lens is the weight. But I knew this when I purchased it. It hasn't affected me in any way. I expect a well built, quality engineered lens to be built well and this one is.

          VRII is amazingly stable.
          Very nice Bokeh.
          Excellent low light images without flash.
          70-200 f/2.8 is what the pro's use at my daughter's dance competition - now I have the lens they use!

          It has lots of glass so it is going to be heavy - it is not a "con", that is just the way the good lenses are - they are all heavy.

          I have been using this lens for shooting actions shots at night HS football games with excellent results. I use a Nikon D7000 and the auto focus has been responsive to my needs. Although heftier than some of my other lens, I use it with a monopod attached to the lens' mount which balances nicely.

            Read the reviews and DXO mark and purchased this for my Nikon D610 and so far so good. What I like about his is the internal zoom which means the lens does not extend out. The focusing is fast and good. Had couple of blurred shots when taken from moving vehicle on the wonderful California coast while driving from Pismo Beach to Monterey and probably the shake was too much due to road.

            Comments about Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Zoom Lens for Nikon:

            In comparison......I have owned a 55-300mm Nikkor lens for a couple years now. While it does a decent job during daylight hours, the Tamron 70-200mm blows the Nikkor lens away when it comes to nighttime or low light photos. The VC on this Tamron locks in quick and helps reduce camera shake with precision. Although, it does have some weight to it. But you have to come to expect that with f/2.8 lenses of this caliber. I searched and looked at reviews for months before buying this lens. I can't wait to use it during high school football season.

            This was recommended to me by a few photographers over the sigma and less than the Nikon lense. I had the camera for a few days then went down to NYC to take some action shots of my kids in the playground and at the central park zoo.

            Shots came out great with the Nikon D7100.

            After much deliberation, I bought this lens after my Nikon 70-300 VR failed. I primarily used these zooms for sports (softball these days). I was happy with the Nikon, but decided to go for a more substantial lens. I was a little worried about the reach of the lens, but it has been fine. While the quality of my pictures has been very good, I do notice that the lens is not super quick to focus, both on my D7000 and my old D2Hs. If you haven't used a lens like this, it is BIG and HEAVY! Online pictures and words don't do it justice. I can't say how this compares to the Nikon 70-200/2.8, but I am perfectly happy with this lens.

              Bought this lens primarily for shooting my daughter's swimming and other sporting activities. The lens is very fast to focus and was very sharp on the end results. Very pleased with this purchase for my skill level and function.

              I use this to shoot portraits and concerts. I've been into photography for about 4 years now and this is the missing piece to my lens collection. I am more than please with this lens. I have other Tamron lenses( 17-50 mm 2.8) and this 70-200 has not let me down. It's fast, quiet, sharp, affordable, and given me great results thus far. Highly recommended for those who aren't able to spend the money on the Nikon counterpart. It is heavy, but that doesn't bother me at all.

                Comments about Tamron SP 70-200mm f/2.8 Di VC USD Zoom Lens for Nikon:

                I'm not a pro, just a serious amateur. I'm using the Tamron 24-70 with a Nikon D800. For years I had been shooting with a D700 with Nikon's 24-120 f/4. I had upgraded to the D800, but really was never very happy with the 24-120. I replaced the Nikon 24-120 with Tamron's 24-70 and 70-200. I couldn't be happier. This review will sound a great deal like my review of the Tamron 24-70 -- I purchased them at the same time.

                The Nikon 70-200 f/2.8 was out of reach for me (financially) and I seriously considered the Nikon 70-200 f/4, but, in the end, opted for the Tamron 70-200 f/2.8 and am quite glad that I did.

                Just like the Tamron 24-70, I find that the focus of the Tamron 70-200 to quick and accurate. Images are sharp -- in fact, the quality of the photos of the Tamron 70-200 is so much better than my Nikon 24-120 that, in hind sight, I'm thinking there was a problem (e.g. front- or back-focus issue) with the Nikon 24-120. Putting the Tamron 70-200 on my D800 brought out the sharpness that I felt should have been there all along, but had no basis for comparison.

                I didn't care for the tight-fitting lens hood on the Tamron 24-70, but there is no such issue with their 70-200. I also quite satisfied with the collar and foot and find the build quality to be excellent.

                    Like a lot of other people, I researched this lens until I was blue in the face. Probably saw every review on youtube...And then some! In the end, I'm glad I went with Tamron as opposed to Canon. And yes, I did rent the Canon version.
                    The Tamron 70-200 VC has great focus and great color along with beautiful dof and beautiful bokeh. I'm all about street portraits and this is my absolute go-to lens. The only thing that Canon has on it...Is a bigger price tag!

                    Yeah, it's pricy, and it took almost 2 years for me to save enough to get it. But,,,, a lot less than Nikon's model and just the lens I've been waiting for. I do concerts by 3d tier performers and a lot of venues are about 2 bulbs short of a good shot. So, this baby's a big help in getting a good picture and is gonna be on my camera an awful lot this season.

                    Heavy? Sorta, but I'm tough. I can take it.
